Mammography vendor InstrumentariumImaging will debut a new positioning device at this year's RSNAmeeting. The company's Eklund positioning system (EPS) allowsmammographers to take advantage of the mobile portions of thebreast by moving the x-ray tube and film holder as a unit so thefilm holder moves against the lateral margin of the breast. Doingso increases the amount of breast tissue that can be imaged withoutadded discomfort, according to the company.

Instrumentarium, of Milwaukee, developed EPS with Dr. BillEklund, medical director of the Susan G. Komen Breast Center atSt. Francis Medical Center in Peoria, IL. EPS attaches to allnew Instrumentarium Alpha systems. Alpha devices in the fieldcan be upgraded to accommodate EPS.
